Google, Blogger and language
I have noticed one change after google bought blogger: The ad in a Norwegian language blog I occasionally read is in Norwegian! It's an ad for one of the most intelligent Norwegian comedians, Knut Nærum. I love his style and his topics, so finding that he uses blog ads for an advertising campaign is kind of interesting, but I am amazed that google/blogger (goggler? Bloogle?) distinguishes between languages and figured out that that blog is in Norwegian. There's no Norwegian language option in the settings, for instance, so it had to happen from somehow recognizing the language.

The blog in question is Gummihjertet, Rubber Heart, written by Muskat. Which means Nutmeg, so it's definitely an anonymous blog. It's updated very sporadically.
